    Best keyboard for iPad Air

    Hi All! I’m looking at getting an iPad Air and am wondering what keyboards you like the best. I currently have the grey foldable keyboard cover from Apple for my iPad Pro (1st gen). Important is that it’s relatively lightweight. Thanks!

    iPad Air Is the iPad Air Worth It?

    Hi All! I currently own a 1st gen iPad Pro, and an iPad mini from 10 years ago or so. I live in Europe, but I’m travelling in the US and as Apple is so much cheaper here I’m tempted to upgrade- I can get $250 trade in for the pro. So my question is, since the airs came out in 2020, is it still...

    iMac 24inch (2021) & iPad Air (2022) or MacBook Air (2022)

    iPad mini Next iPad mini possibly an iPad Air in a smaller size?

    When you look at the rumored specs of the next iPad Mini, from a design and spec sheet it looks more like a smaller iPad Air. So what if Apple changes the name to just an iPad Air, but you have two sizes and the same color options? It kinda makes sense... iPad - Base model iPad Air - General...

However, the screen was really harsh (lack of True Tone I...

    iPad What happened to my on-screen keyboard?

    Strange thing, the keyboard on my iPad Air (1st gen, IOS 12.4.8) got suddenly split into two halves, for no apparent reason. Haven't changed anything, no new software or updates. Annoying problem, since the split keyboard sits in the middle of the screen, making it impossible to enter text in...
